It Is Never To Late To Up Level Your Law Firm with Kelly Stanford (EP 104)
In this episode, we have a special guest, Kelly Stanford from Stanford's Solicitors and Mediators.
Kelly is also a student in the Scalable Business Lounge, learning how to leverage her firm for more time and freedom.
Being in business for over twenty years, Kelly has many experiences that she generously shared with listeners.
Being a people person, Kelly has a passion for helping my clients find a solution to their legal problems. She stumbled into family law and has found her niche in helping clients through their separation and divorce, and estate planning.
One of the key takeaways from what Kelly shared is that as a lawyer, she started her firm because she was great at offering a legal service.
However, she realised that in her early days as a law firm owner, all she had done was created herself a full-time job rather than a business that afforded her more freedom and profit. It wasn’t until recent years that she started to scale her practice so that her business could serve her in far more beneficial ways.
Kelly has had a bigger focus on working on her business rather than in it. Since joining mentoring groups and connecting with other law firm owners, including the Scalable Business Lounge, Kelly has started implementing changes into her practice.
As a result, she has a much better work-life balance and is looking forward to the next phase of her business.
We also had a really interesting chat about what it was like starting a business in the late 90s versus now. There have been so many changes in the legal industry which makes it much easy to start a law firm these days.
Tune in to hear us talk about how to get from running a firm that provides only a job to scaling a law firm that can provide a lifestyle and freedom.
